About Cheap Thrills

"Cheap Thrills" is a song by Australian singer-songwriter Sia from her seventh studio album, This Is Acting (2016). It was written by Sia Furler and Greg Kurstin, while solely produced by Kurstin. An official remix version of "Cheap Thrills" features vocals from Jamaican singer Sean Paul, and was made available for digital download on 11 February 2016 as the album's second single. This version was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. The song is a "bouncy", "reggae-tinged" synthpop and dancehall song that incorporates "a constant tropical beat and electropop-style synth layers". Paul added his own lyrics to the remix of the song. In the United States, "Cheap Thrills" peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 becoming Sia's first number one single in the chart, and Paul's first since "Temperature" in 2006; it also topped the national Mainstream Top 40 and Radio Songs charts. Among other countries, it also reached the top positions in Austria, Belgium (Wallonia), Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden; as well as the top 10 in Australia, Belgium (Flanders), Colombia, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, Iceland, Guatemala, Lebanon, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In the United Kingdom, the song reached number two on the UK Singles Chart. At the APRA Music Awards of 2018 it won Most Played Australian Work Overseas for the song's writers Sia and Kurstin. It won the award again at the APRA Music Awards of 2019.
